Last weekend I've been trying to catch some light: early morning Spring light.
It's more difficult as I thought!

(All picture are shot with the D700 and the 80-200mm F4.5 from around 1973)

Very nice shots Rob. You did a good job indeed.
I like the pattern of repetition formed by the trees in No.4 and the light in No. 6 and 7.
The 80-200 f4.5 from the 70's continuous to be one of my favorite lenses. I had mine AI converted so that I could use it with modern cameras. I have always been impressed with the quality of its images. Perhaps modern lenses are better but there is something in its quality that attracts me.
It is one of the legendary Nikon optics and was very sought after in its time.

Rob, I especially like the light in 3, 6, and 7.

I checked the time stamps in the EXIF data, and was surprised to see that the last two were taken ~45 min after the first one. [You must have been running to get this many shots with such varied content.:biggrin:]

Bob,
As I told lately in another post, the whole of The Netherlands is man made. In two minutes you can here easily walk and see these completely different views. And especially those waterways make it so nice for photography!

Houston, as little as possible.
Rob, I think 1, 4, 6 and 7 are to die for. The images are good technically and aesthetically, but have something I call emotional content wich is difficult to achieve in landscape photography. Most of the Southeastern US is flat like Holland, so the scenes remind me of the Southern winter in rural areas. It's a challenge to do landscape photography in flatland, but you are meeting it.
